Medical isotope production using a subcritical assembly
Someone brought this to my attention, an alternative way of producing medical isotopes: Medical isotope production using a subcritical assembly: http://jnumedmtg.snmjournals.org/cgi/content/meeting_abstract/53/1_MeetingAbstracts/1480 "The system employs a low-enriched uranium (LEU) solution driven by a beam-target deuterium-tritium neutron source that does not have a vacuum window. Pressure in the gas target and a vacuum in the accelerator are maintained with differential pumping. The neutron driver occupies the center of a vessel containing the LEU solution and moderator in a geometry optimized for high efficiency production. Hydrogen and oxygen from radiolysis of water will be recombined and volatile radioactive gas will be removed continuously during operation."
Welcome to the Future of Neutron Scattering in Canada
a grassroots, nonpartisan movement of ordinary Canadians
that emerged in response to the lack of commitment by federal government(s) to build a new research reactor in Canada for nearly 2 decades.
